May 2017. very few companies are domination the various technology markets:

Server CPU: Intel (99%)
PC CPU: Intel (79%), AMD (21%)
Device CPU: ARM (100%)
FPGA: Xilinx (49%), Intel (38%)
GPU: Intel (68%), Nvidia (18%), AMD (14%)
Hard Disks: Western Digital (41%), Seagate ( 37%), Toshiba (22%)
DRAM: Samsung (50%), Hynix (25%), Micron (19%)
NAND: Samsung (35%), Toshiba( (20%), Western Digital (17%), Micron (10%)
Solid State Disks: Samsung (35%), Western Digital (19%), Intel (9%), Kingston (7%)
Tape Drives: IBM (100%)
Tape Media: Fujifilm, Sony

Worldwide semiconductor revenues grew 1.5% in 2016. Weak start in the first half and a stronger recovery at the end, driven by the short supply of memory chips and the corresponding increase in prices. Higher DRAM and NAND prices have largely contributed to an increased growth rate in the beginning of 2017.


The worldwide revenues for the production of electronic equipment is essentially flat and shows clear signs of saturation.


There is the expectation that in 2018 the semiconductor industry will cross the 1 Trillion unit per year shipment.


Only a small part is directly used for computing equipment, e.g. 17.7 Billion ARM processors and 0.3 Billion processors from Intel/AMD. Discrete elements are e.g. Thyristors, Power Transistors, Diodes, etc.


Today Intel is still the sales leader in the semiconductor market, but it is expected that it will be overtaken by Samsung at the end of 2017
